Broken Link Checker
Thoughts on 1000s of bad links (1 post)

    So I ran this excellent plugin the other and was somewhat shocked to see I have over 5000 bad links (in over 15,000 post on a 7 year old blog maybe that's not that bad?)

    Most of them are old stories on other sites and stuff I linked out to that I have no control over, plus a few sloppy inside links.

    ANyway, I can't just clear all of them because many have linked phrases like "click here" which would look really awkward without the link. I may actually pay someone to start going through these, but in the meantime, aside from being unsightly, does this hurt my SEO?
